The relationship between the United States and Japan was very hostile in the 1940’s. Japan, Germany, and Italy were trying to conquer the world. December 7, 1941 was a day that will never be forgotten as Japan sent many planes to attack the US naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. The planes killed more than 2,300 Americans and completely destroyed the pact between them. The Japanese flew suicide missions to cause as much damage as possible.
Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (Ishiro Honda, 1964) 1964 was the year that Toho decided to shift the kaiju genre 's focus from adults to children, stripping the films from much of their depth and largely turning them into wrestling matches among actors with monster suits. This particularly film though, remains one of the best entries in the category, particularly due to its cast that featured Takashi Shimura, who played in Akira Kurosawa 's "Ikiru" and Eiji Okada, from Hiroshi Teshigahara 's "Woman in the Dunes". This time the plot involves Princess Selina, who is saved from an assassination attempt by police detective Shindo. The Princess also prophecies disasters to come, which after a while become true, as a meteorite that had previously crashed on Earth, is revealed to be an egg that hatches into King Ghidorah. The monster begins razing the countryside, and the Japanese government asks the help of Mothra to help them defend the country.
The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki devastated the people of these cities. This, however, ended the conflict between the U.S. and Japan, but was it a good idea for the U.S.? Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed, and over one-hundred fifty thousand people were killed in the atomic bombings of Japan. The bombings by the United States were necessary because Japan was a powerful adversary that the United States needed to overcome in order to defeat Germany. They had started World War Two and put the Jewish people and gypsies and people they deemed not good enough for society in concentration camps.
In 1945, World War II (1939-1945) had been going on for six years. The United States had entered the war in 1941 and had only been fighting for four years. In a desperate attempt to end the war, the United States decided it would be a good idea to scare people by using the nuclear bombs they created (Brumfiel). On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped a bomb named “Little Boy” on the Japanese city, Hiroshima. Three days later, on August 9, the U.S dropped another bomb called “Fat Boy” on the Japanese city, Nagasaki (Hall).
These creatures are the animals or insects with mysterious and magical powers. One representation of a kaiju in the modern context is Godzilla. Godzilla is often portrayed as a violent monster that cause havoc to its surroundings and getting killed in the end. However, as centuries passed by, the new era showed that it was just a misunderstood monster, who later then, helps mankind from other monsters. Meanwhile, henge are shape-shifters.
For instance, Ozymandias reiterates that “I believe there are some people who do want, if only subconsciously [sic. ], an end to the world. …I see the twentieth century as a race between enlightenment and extinction.” However, it is important to point out that Ozymandias intentionally kills millions of people in an effort to convince nations that they are on the brink of a nuclear attack from alien. Ideally, the Watchmen question the obvious heroism of Ozymandias along with other traditional heroics of other heroes who failed in resolving world crisis of similar magnitude. In this regard, Watchmen through its deconstruction of the hero posit that the time for heroes has passed.
